Welcome to the Keshet Resources Library!
Here you will find a variety of resources on all things LGBT and Jewish: articles, rituals, poetry, divrei torah/sermons, policies and more. This is a dynamic collection of resources, written by a variety of authors, in different time periods, who offer a range of insight and perspective.
We’re grateful to the Institute for Judaism, Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity for curating this extraordinary collection of LGBT Jewish resources. While this is not an exhaustive library of resources on these topics, it is extensive and updated frequently. We always welcome new contributions and feedback on what’s here.
